24 Weeks


Here is the latest picture of the ever growing belly. Tomorrow I will actually be 26 weeks and it has unfortunately taken me this long to get it up on the blog.

I think that we are going to be looking into some internet plans in the next week or so.

I had my glucose screening today and saw the doctor as well. The baby is continuing to grow and the heartbeat has been a steady 150. I had been having a tremendous amount of back pain and even felt a few early contractions this morning. After my exam, the doctor did in fact reveal that I am having contractions and that my cervix is already 50% effaced. Not the news I was hoping for! Right now I am to take it easy and rest often. I have also been prescribed Brethine (which I took during my pregnancy with Joshua and Abby Kate) to help stop/ease the contractions that I am having. I am on the lowest dose for now. They are checking to make sure that I do not have a urinary tract infection (which could explain why I am starting to have these contractions). We were suppose to leave for Panama City Beach tomorrow, but I am also no longer allowed to leave town. Hopefully my body will cooperate and this little baby will be here in June!

Ben and I will be praying for you and your precious baby. I remember that medicine along with all the others a little too well. I know it's hard to "take it easy" with 2 three year olds. Just do the best you can. We'll be praying for the weeks ahead that this baby will stay put and grow, grow, grow. Love, Anna

Sunny,

Taylor and I will be praying for you guys as well. Take it easy (I know it is easier said than done). If there is anything we can help out with (meals, cleaning the house, or helping with the kids) please let us know.

Big hugs to you!! Did the doc say anything about putting a stitch in your cervix to keep it closed, or is it too late for that?

I just can't imagine how hard this is with the twins.

Love and hugs, Tracy

Tracy - no mention of stitching anything (yet). I go back to the doctor on Friday and hopefully I will be the same. They did call today to let me know that I do have a bladder infection and they said that that is probaby causing the contractions. I started my antibiotic tonight and will hopefully stop having all of these contractions.
